    Post Content or Contents of report, memo, letter, etc.

    We are divided on whether "content" or "contents" should be used when using the phrase, "Should you have any questions regarding the 'content/contents'..." at the end of a report, etc. I prefer using "content". My co-worker says it should be "contents". Which is correct?

    I would prefer contents in this context - there may be several lines of argument and discussion.

    It would probably depend on whether the report had several items that someone might have a problem or if it might be the whole document, in which case I would prefer content.

    As Anglika says there is probably lots of different thoughts on this point.
